Favorite Subject: Art

Favorite book read at WA: 1984   

Favorite WA tradition: Senior Banquet  

Senior Thesis Title: Athletics: From Game to God

Brief Description of Senior Thesis: In my senior thesis, I am discussing sports. As I was brainstorming on what topic to choose for my thesis this year, I came to a conclusion that I honestly did not expect. I came to realize how much of an influence sports have on my life in both healthy and unhealthy ways. This led me to see how our culture as a whole has a very similar relationship to sports. We have elevated sports too high and even placed them on a pedestal. My thesis will bring awareness to this fact.

College Choice OR How you plan to spend next year? University of Tennessee at Knoxville 

Intended Major or field of work after Westminster: Pharmaceutical Representative  

What advice or encouragement would you give to younger students at Westminster? Play football for Lausanne, but also, learn to live a balanced life. An unbalanced life leads to burnout and that’s not very fun. 

Please share a funny memory or highlight from your time at Westminster:
The establishment of Fort Haylowtown. We came, we saw, we conquered. 

Favorite Bible Verse: “My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever” (Psalm 73:26).

Prayer Request: For guidance and strength as I enter this new chapter of my life at the University of Tennessee
